        The Art of Preserving All Kinds of Animal and Vegetable Substances for Several Years. A Work Published by Order of the French Minister of the Interior. Translated from the French

      London for Black, Parry, and Kingsbury, booksellers to the Hon. East-India Company 1811 - Duodecimo (176 × 103 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt in compartments, marbled endpapers, double line rules to boards gilt, blue speckled edges. Folding plate. Contemporary armorial bookplate of William Middleton Esq. Some wear to extremities, only minor toning and offsetting to contents. An excellent, unsophisticated copy. First English language edition of the first book on canning as a food preservation technique. Louis Appert (1749-1841) "learned the art of cooking from his father, who was an hotelier. He worked at first in the service of the Duke of Deux-Ponts and was officier de bouche to the Princess of Forbach. In 1780 he established himself in business as a confectioner in the Rue des Lombards in Paris. The Directory government offered a prize of 12,000 francs for the discovery of a process to preserve the food destined for the army. Appert perfected a sterilization method which was named after him - appertisation. In 1804 he built a factory at Massy (on land where peas and beans had been cultivated) and started up the production of bottled preserved foods. In 1810 the government officially recognized his discovery and awarded him the prize. In the same year, Appert published L'Art de conserver pendant, which generously made his process available to all. Moreover, his work was republished in 1811 and 1813 under the title Livre de tous les menages. The fall of the Empire ruined him but in 1822, by which time others had become rich on his discovery, the state recognized his achievement in conceiving the process by granting him a small income. In the premises which were then allowed him, he pursued his experiments on the clarification of wines, the purification of bone gelatin, preservation in cans, etc, but he subsequently died in poverty" (The Concise Larousse Gastronomique, p. 34).

        Africa

      London: Caldell & Davies, 1811. unbound. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 18 1/8 x 39 1/4". This lovely map reflects early 19th-century European knowledge of the continent of Africa. Towns and ports are labeled, and the map is annotated throughout with references to local tribes. Relief is shown by hachures, particularly at the Kong Mountains, which, according to the map, are "supposed to extend across the continent." Below are areas labeled "Unknown Parts." The island of Madagascar appears in sharp relief at the lower left of the map, right above the title and scale. The map is in good condition with some wear to the center fold. Slight tears and chips in the margin not affecting the image. John Pinkerton (1758-1826) was a prominent English mapmaker known for his large and impeccably detailed maps. In this manner, his work marks a turning point from the earlier emphasis on decoration toward a greater emphasis on information. This map is a fine example of his work.

        BEFORE THE MOST NOBLE AND RIGHT HONORABLE THE LORDS COMMISSIONERS OF APPEALS IN PRIZE CAUSES. HEROINE, ROBERT HARWOOD, MASTER.

      London. . 1811 - [4],[4],8,[3]pp. Large folio. Dbd. Very good. Four documents together, all briefs before the Admiralty Prize Court in London relating to the ship, Heroine, and its seizure and salvage at Antigua in 1805. Such briefs were printed in very small numbers for the use of the litigants only, and are extremely rare. Present here are the briefs of appellants and respondents, and two briefs of evidence. The Heroine was seized by a French privateer while on a voyage from London to St. Kitts in the Windward Islands. The French put a prize crew on and sent the ship on to Guadeloupe, but due to poor navigation, the boat was instead shipwrecked on a rock off the British island of Antigua. The British crew, still aboard, managed to salvage the vessel and bring it into St. John's, where they claimed it as a salvage. They were awarded the ship, but were then sued by the British owners, who wanted the ship returned. Six years later the British court found against the owners and awarded the ship to salvagers. The documents provide a detailed account of the tangled case, and in so doing give a good picture of Caribbean commerce at the time.

        Über Inhalt und Vortrag, Entstehung und Schicksale des königlichen Buchs, eines Werkes von der Regierungskunst als Ankündigung einer Übersetzung nebst Probe aus dem Türkisch-Persisch-Arabischen des Waassi Aly Dschelebi.

      Berlin, gedruckt auf eigene Kosten (bey Johann Friedrich Weiss), in Kommission der Nicolaischen Buchhandlung, 1811. - 8vo. (2), 214 pp. Modern marbled boards with printed spine label. Edges sprinkled. First edition. - A scholarly account, and partial German translation, of Ali Vasi Celebi's "Humayunnama" - a Turkish translation of the Persian "Anvar-i suhayli" (Light of Canopus), completed before 1543, which is in itself an adaptation of "Kalila wa Dimna", or the "Fables of Bidpai", a collection of animal fables with didactic overtones designed to illustrate wise conduct. - The oriental scholar H. F. Diez (1751-1817) had trained as a jurist but, bored by his administrative occupation, soon left the Prussian civil service and in 1784 went to Constantinople as Frederick the Great's chargé d'affaires at the Sublime Porte. He was ennobled after only two years of successful diplomatic service. Recalled in 1790 on the eve of the Russo-Turkish War, the self-confessed Turkophile soon retired to a life of an independent scholar and book collector in Berlin. His orientalist publications captured the attention of the learned world, and he moved in the circles of Goethe, Gleim, and Alexander von Humboldt, though largely outside the contemporary tradition of academic oriental studies. "Between his years in Constantinople and his death, Diez pursued his Orientalist studies with extraordinary energy. A string of books authored by Diez and mostly self-published appeared in 1811 [.] Even if many aspects of his scholarly life are almost forgotten, his merits, especially for the development of Turkish studies, are noteworthy [.] His works, almost completely printed at his own expense, reflect his interest in the origins of Asian cultures, literatures, and politics, as well as everyday issues and ethics" (J. Gonnella et al. [ed.], The Diez Albums [Leiden, 2017], p. 58, 76). - A fine copy, well-preserved throughout. Chauvin II, p. 49, no. 70. Ruppert 756. Goedeke VII, 589, 61, 1.

A printed notebook in which to record daily Perte, Gain, Recette, & Dépense followed by a section for "Souvenir." Bound in boards lacquered with a black ground painted in gold, red, & green. On the upper cover a Japanese fisherman hauls in his catch; on the lower, he leaves with fish basket slung over his shoulder. Each cover displays a different building and different floral border. Velvet spine (worn) , red silk endpapers and loops to hold the pencil (present here), ribbon place marker. Very tiny label of Clarice W. Hamill on pastedown. With the rare Brevet d'Invention (patent) label on pastedown. Some crackling under the varnish & a tiny chip from lower cover, but a very good copy. "In 1811, Théodore Pierre Bertin obtained a five year patent for lacquered bindings ('reliures vernissées'). His workshop produced most of the c30 known examples, the last of which has a 1818 printed text." (British Library database of bindings) In this expensive and delicate technique, the binding was repeatedly--dozens of times-- varnished & rubbed down to achieve a lustrous finish. These rare bindings are frequently, and erroneously, termed "Vernis Martin" after the four Martin brothers who invented a lacquer finish for furniture. Albert Ehrman published a census (The Book Collector, Winter 1965) of "Vernis Martin" bindings in the libraries of Abbey, Broxburne, Esmerian, Morgan, Walters Art Gallery, Wittock, et al. There is nothing similar to this binding in his census. A two-volume work in Vernis bindings (Erhman's no. 4, described as "of the greatest rarity") but with no patent label brought $45,000 in the Cornelius Hauck sale.

        Uncle Tom's Cabin Or, Negro Life in the Slave Staves of America. Embellished with Eight Engranings.

      13,5 cm x 20 cm. Frontispiece, VI, 351 pages. Original Hardcover / Original full leather with gilt ornaments on spine and boards. Spine label faded, otherwise in good condition with some stronger signs of external wear. Harriet Elisabeth Beecher Stowe (June 14, 1811 July 1, 1896) was an American abolitionist and author. She came from the Beecher family, a famous religious family, and is best known for her novel Uncle Tom's Cabin (1852). It depicts the harsh life for African Americans under slavery. It reached millions as a novel and play, and became influential in the United States and Great Britain. It energized anti-slavery forces in the American North, while provoking widespread anger in the South. She wrote 30 books, including novels, three travel memoirs, and collections of articles and letters. She was influential for both her writings and her public stands on social issues of the day. Harriet Elisabeth Beecher was born in Litchfield, Connecticut, on June 14, 1811. She was the seventh of 13 children born to outspoken Calvinist preacher Lyman Beecher and Roxana (Foote), a deeply religious woman who died when Stowe was only five years old. Roxana's maternal grandfather was General Andrew Ward of the Revolutionary War. Her notable siblings included a sister, Catharine Beecher, who became an educator and author, as well as brothers who became ministers: including Henry Ward Beecher, who became a famous preacher and abolitionist, Charles Beecher, and Edward Beecher. Harriet enrolled in the Hartford Female Seminary run by her older sister Catharine, where she received a traditional academic education usually reserved for males at the time with a focus in the classics, including studies of languages and mathematics. Among her classmates was Sarah P. Willis, who later wrote under the pseudonym Fanny Fern. In 1832, at the age of 21, Harriet Beecher moved to Cincinnati, Ohio to join her father, who had become the president of Lane Theological Seminary. There, she also joined the Semi-Colon Club, a literary salon and social club whose members included the Beecher sisters, Caroline Lee Hentz, Salmon P. Chase (future governor of the state and Secretary of Treasury under President Lincoln), Emily Blackwell and others. Cincinnati's trade and shipping business on the Ohio River was booming, drawing numerous migrants from different parts of the country, including many free blacks, as well as Irish immigrants who worked on the state's canals and railroads. Areas of the city had been wrecked in the Cincinnati riots of 1829, when ethnic Irish attacked blacks, trying to push competitors out of the city. Beecher met a number of African Americans who had suffered in those attacks, and their experience contributed to her later writing about slavery. Riots took place again in 1836 and 1841, driven also by native-born anti-abolitionists. It was in the literary club that she met Calvin Ellis Stowe, a widower who was a professor at the seminary. The two married on January 6, 1836. He was an ardent critic of slavery, and the Stowes supported the Underground Railroad, temporarily housing several fugitive slaves in their home. Most slaves continued north to secure freedom in Canada. The Stowes had seven children together, including twin daughters. (Wikipedia)

        Recherches, expériences et observations physiologiques sur l'homme dans l'état de somnambulisme naturel et dans le somnambulisme provoqué par l'acte magnétique.

Edition originale d'une des premières études d'importance sur le somnambulisme artificiel et naturel. Importante synthèse des travaux de Puységur, disciple de Mesmer et découvreur du somnambulisme magnétique. Il complète et amplifie ici les annonces faites dans ses "Mémoires" de 1784-86, réaffirme que le différence majeure entre le somnambulisme artificiel et naturel réside dans le phénomène de dépendance du sujet magnétisé par rapport au magnétiseur dans le cas du somnambulisme artificiel. Il constate qu'en général le somnambulisme naturel est lié à l'état de sommeil. Il observe les modifications de conscience en état de sommeil magnétique, ce qui ouvrira la voie à la notion "d'inconscient". Il donne aussi la description des précieuses techniques que Mesmer refusait de révéler. Après une analyse détaillée de différents cas et manifestations somnambuliques, facultés des somnambules, clairvoyance, vision, etc... il conclut sur les dangers de l'utilisation du somnambulisme magnétique. ¶ Caillet n°2276 - Crabtree n° 237 "A significant study of natural and magnetic somnambulism by the discoverer of the latter." - Wellcome II.331 - Hirsch IV.691 - Eimas Heirs of Hippocrates n° 1097.

        Der Vetter Schauer beim Spielen der Querflöte, 1811

      - Technik: Bleistift auf Papier. Beschriftung: unten rechts signiert, datiert und bezeichnet: "JAKlein del: 1811 Nürnberg", verso bezeichnet: "Der Vetter Schauer aus Nbg", Sammlungsstempel Henirich Lempertz, Köln (Lugt Nr. 1337). Provenienz: Sammlung Heinrich Lempertz, Köln. Grösse: 15,5 x 10,2 cm (Darstellung). Zustand: Insgesamt guter Zustand, minimal fleckig. Beschreibung: Präsent und doch abwesend, so begegnet uns der Vetter Schauer auf Johann Adam Kleins Zeichnung. Der Versenkung in die musikalische Übung steht die Körperlichkeit der Zeichnung gegenüber. Anders als bei Daniel Nikolaus Chodowiecki oder Wilhelm von Kobell, die ähnliche Momentaufnahmen ihres nächsten Umfeldes getätigt haben, ist die ganze Figur des Mannes mit kräftigem Stich betont und verneint somit den flüchtigen Moment. Lediglich die Umgebung bekommt etwas von der Spontaneität zu spüren, wenn sie sich mit dünneren Linien und schemenhaften Andeutung zufrieden geben muss. Doch trotz der Präsenz entzieht Klein dem Betrachter sein Gegenüber wieder, wenn er den Hut tief über die Augen rutschen lässt, so dass sich nur ein halbes Porträt ergibt, das den wichtigsten Teil verschweigt. So nistet sich trotz der vermeintlich klaren Wiedergabe die Ambivalenz des Flüchtigen in die Darstellung ein. Unser Blatt reiht sich in eine Gruppe von Freundschaftsdarstellungen ein, die Klein gegen Ende seiner Studienzeit bei Ambrosius Gabler in Nürnberg schuf (Vgl. Johann Adam Klein, „Am Brunnen", 1811, Bleistift auf Papier, 11,9 x 15,8 cm, Kunsthalle Mannheim, Inv. Nr. G 648 [A.I. 774]; „Der Freund Georg Christoph Wilder", 1810, Bleistift auf Papier, 11,5 x 12,5 cm, Museum der bildenden Künste, Leipzig, Inv. Nr. NJ 805). Bevor er im September 1811 nach Wien aufbricht, hat Gabler ihm in den sechs Jahren seiner Lehre neben einer Einführung in die druckgraphischen Techniken auch die Augen dafür geöffnet, dass sich die Einheit des Ganzen aus der Summe seiner Teile ergibt. Im Detail sollte Klein den Schlüssel für seine Bilder finden. Und auch unsere Zeichnung ist von dieser Sehnsucht nach dem Mikrokosmos geprägt, der für ihn die Welt aufschließt. Jede Falte der damals beliebten Suwarowstiefel mit ihren am oberen Rand tief ausgeschnittenen Bögen, jede Schattierung des langen Fracks, der Ohrring, der große Hut, die Klappen der Flöte: all dies sind Elemente einer Weltaneignung, die aus dem Flüchtigen der Anschauung eine Beständigkeit zu schälen sucht. So scheint der Detailreichtum der Kleidung das versteckte Gesicht gleichsam zu kompensieren und zum eigentlichen Porträt zu werden. Klein war ein Meister dieser vermeintlich beständigen Transitorik. Oft löst sich in den Zeichnungen die Umgebung in skizzierte Strichlagen auf, ganz so, als würden sie sich nur im Zentrum der Darstellung bündeln, um etwas vorstellig zu machen. Aber so schwebt in ihnen das Moment der Auflösung immer mit und vermittelt trotz der genrehaften Präsenz den Aspekt des Zeitlichen. Gerade in dieser Vereinigung von Gegensätzlichkeiten liegt der große Reiz dieser Blätter, die Kleins meisterhaften Umgang mit dem Bleistift dokumentieren. Es handelt sich um einen Gesamtpreis inkl. Versandkosten innerhalb der BRD. Umsatzsteuer wird wegen Differenzbesteuerung nach §25a UstG weder erhoben noch ausgewiesen. Zustand: Insgesamt guter Zustand, minimal fleckig.

        Recherches, expériences et observations physiologiques sur l'homme dans l'état de somnambulisme naturel et dans le somnambulisme provoqué par l'acte magnétique.

      Paris, Dentu, 1811, in 8°, de 5ff. XII-430pp. 1f. d'errata, cart. papier marbré bleu moderne genre ancien, bon exemplaire à toutes marges. Edition originale d'une des premières études d'importance sur le somnambulisme artificiel et naturel. Importante synthèse des travaux de Puységur, disciple de Mesmer et découvreur du somnambulisme magnétique. Il complète et amplifie ici les annonces faites dans ses "Mémoires" de 1784-86, réaffirme que le différence majeure entre le somnambulisme artificiel et naturel réside dans le phénomène de dépendance du sujet magnétisé par rapport au magnétiseur dans le cas du somnambulisme artificiel. Il constate qu'en général le somnambulisme naturel est lié à l'état de sommeil. Il observe les modifications de conscience en état de sommeil magnétique, ce qui ouvrira la voie à la notion "d'inconscient". Il donne aussi la description des précieuses techniques que Mesmer refusait de révéler. Après une analyse détaillée de différents cas et manifestations somnambuliques, facultés des somnambules, clairvoyance, vision, etc... il conclut sur les dangers de l'utilisation du somnambulisme magnétique. ¶ Caillet n°2276 - Crabtree n° 237 "A significant study of natural and magnetic somnambulism by the discoverer of the latter." - Wellcome II.331 - Hirsch IV.691 - Eimas Heirs of Hippocrates n° 1097.
